Classic Friday (2): Rosemary's Baby

Merry Christmas!! What do I have for you, well a cult classic "horror" movie review of course :) Enjoy!
Title: Rosemary's Baby
Year: 1968
Director: Roman Polanski
Actors/Actresses: Mia Farrow as Rosemary Woodhouse, John Cassavetes as Guy Woodhouse, Ruth Gordon as Minnie Castevet and Sidney Blackmer as Roman Castevet.
Rated: R

Synopsis: When Rosemary moves into her new apartment with her husband, Guy Woodhouse, an ambitious but unsuccesful actor, she meets a girl named Terry who tells her about an old couple, the Castevets, who has taken her in, a few days later she kills herself.

The Woodhouses later meet the Castevets, but find them to be a rather odd couple, both Rosemary and Guy make fun of them, Guy especially. But after a while Guy seems to be rather taken with the old couple. One night Minnie brings a chocolate mousse for Guy and Rosemary, Rosemary eats it but thinks it has a "chalky aftertaste," Guy tells her its fine and eat the whole thing, when Guy goes away form the table Rosemary dumps the rest of the mousse out. Later that night, Rosemary has a weird hallucination feeling which at first feels like a dream, but after a bit she realizes its not a dream but that she is part of some weird ritual, there are weird symbols drawn all over her body and a weird thing that rapes with her.

A few days later she finds she is pregnent, but her pregnency is weird she is losing pounds instead of gaining it, her husband won't even look her in the eyes, and her baby seems to be attacking her from within, and she slowly learns about sadistic happenings in their new apartment.

Wdebo's Review: Ok, I know that summary was really, long but I really don't know how to make it shorter, this movie just twists around, but also has that predictable chessy nature that all 60's movies have. But the beginning has totally weird scenes, especially the scene after the chocolate mousse...totally weirdness, especially when you're watching it with your parents :O

But after that it was pretty mild and not that bad, except aggravating like all the other 60's horror movies, just some parts are so ugh, that make you want to scream, why are you going there? There's like 1000 signs that tell you not to go!!

All in all, it was a pretty interesting movie, not my favorite, but after that horribly awkward scene it actually got pretty good, except the ending was VERY unsatisfying...and the props were pretty lol, the "devil" reminded me of the swamp thing and the "baby" looked like Donnie Drako's bunny's offspring.

Grade: B-
